Day 3, 1.4lbs down

Hi guys! Was on here I dunno about 6 months ago, but life got very stressful (redundancy etc etc.) and my diet just took a sideline for a bit. Anyway, started again a couple of days ago- I want to do this low and slow this time, I want this weight loss to stick.

I was just planning on losing 1.5lbs a week (so losing 1.5 stone in like 3.5 months?) and on day 3 and im already 1.4 down, but I suppose it always goes quicker on the first week (take it steady Mel!).

Yesterday I had penne with a pork shoulder ragu, BUT I essentially had a small portion of this with a big green salad taking up 2/3rds of the plate, which filled me up.

This morning I had 1 slice whole meal toast with cream cheese and 2 tangerines, and a coffee. I intend to make this a regular brekkie.

Dinner I'm making a beef lentil bolognese, but with homemade skinny potato wedges instead of spaghetti. Thing I struggle with the most is in the evening with dinner I give myself a regular portion (not king-size like before!!) and my fella a bigger one, and he's always like "you're not fat" "eat more" "I can tell your still hungry, just eat and stop being stupid" and it's like, I just want to fit in my clothes again, I'm not starving myself by any means!! Got myself a feeder boyfriend, lol!

Hope all is well with you lot xx
